perspectives are central:

2 - Reality is a non-dual all-inclusive qualitied whole
3 - Key-concept which "drives" the system is aprtak-siddhi or relation of
4 - God is Vishnu is theistic and personal with infinite auspicious qualities
5 - Devotion/surrender is the means to the goal of life

In advance, thank you.
